Property Description

Our spacious common area offers a cozy and relaxing atmosphere with a green teaPODs cafe offering a range of foods and beverages including coffee, tea, fruit juices, milkshakes, cakes and of course beers! We have our own stage where guests are free to jam together and sometimes we have live performances too!

Our location is in Kuala Lumpur, just a stone throw away from KL Sentral station, a hub where most of trains and buses are in and out of the city giving easy access to many major attractions around. The location is also very convenient to catch buses to both airports, KLIA and KLIA2. Housed in a new building in Brickfields with abundant choices of local foods around and the fusion of colorful cultures, trinkets and merchandise traders, all nested in beautiful pre-war shops with things sold that might be familiar even to our Mothers? PODs is also situated in an area where lots of government and religious centers focus on the development of the less fortunate, such as the deaf and blind community and orphanages.

Our Single PODs and Double PODs offer privacy away from the main 16-bed and 4-bed dorms. The PODs have mattresses on raised platforms to give a Zen like feel. Some come with tinted windows, all have individual fans and lights. Our dorms have double bunk beds and personal lockers and are in a large area with plenty of personal space. Each floor has two or three sharing eco-friendly kampong (village) design hot water shower cabins. Central AC units are placed strategically with blowers to all PODs and all designs and themes that have been put up are chosen as best to compliment and promote our eco-friendly theme, which is, to be simple, and always go green. And when traveling, respect the Earth!

We also offer arrangement of tours and travels around Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia comprising of KL city tour, hiking and waterfall trips, overnight in a cave in Taman Negara, water rafting, firefly park, elephant sanctuary and many more.

    This place felt like home. A friend and I had missed a ferry and needed to stay another night. We thought we'd try another hostel but once we arrived, we turned around and came back to PODS. Very mellow atmosphere and friendly staff. We called it our safe haven. Anytime I'm in Malaysia I'd stay here.

    The location is clean and quiet. The staff are AMAZING! I left my canteen the first time I stayed. When I came back, they still had it! They were also super friendly and helpful when asked how to get around the city. Would for sure come back!

    Overall decent place with a convenient location. I found the double pod room quite hot and stuffy as there was only a fan. There may have been AC switched on later in the night as it cooled off but it took a long time

    Perfect location for KL Sentral bus and train station, but far from the city centre so we only stayed there as a layover. Beds are alright, but there is a bad smell everywhere. Rooms and floors require key card access which is good, felt very safe. No butter for toast which is strange.

    Very Good

    Had a pretty comfortable sleep and being so close to KL Sentral was ridiculously convenient for a stopover. But previous reviews were right the smell in the dorm is pretty unpleasant. If you’re just looking for a convenient place to crash this is your place, probably wouldn’t stay much longer
